Sam was nominated by his wife, Makenzie Schentrup. Here's what she had to say about Sam:

Sam has sacrificed living with his wife and 7 month old child to keep us safe while he works the COVID unit right now. We visit from afar or with a pane of glass between us. It's been difficult but he is so strong to do this for us!

From all of us here at 99.5 WKDQ, Diamond Valley Federal Credit Union, and the Tri-State, THANK YOU Sam for all you do each day! We appreciate you!

Do you know a nursing professional who goes above and beyond to make a difference? We want to hear about them so we can give them the proper thank you they deserve. Nominate your favorite nursing professional in the Tri-State and share a personal story of their dedication and service to the community!

Help us say thank you to our Tri-state nursing professionals for everything they do for our community. Nominate your favorite Tri-State nurse now!
